The alleged rapes are said to have happened at some point between January 11 and January 12 at properties in Lincoln Road and St Paul’s Road.

As a result of the allegations, police applied for a court order to shut down the Babylon Restaurant and Shisha Lounge in Lincoln Road, with the court granting a three month closure in Januray.
